I have a similar problem with a Matrox Millenium II card (mga driver).
I'm in the middle of switching from RH7.1 to Gentoo. On RH, everything
works fine but on Gentoo when I exit X all my monitor lights flash and
it doesn't return to text mode. Luckily I can either ctrl-alt-del or
ssh in to reboot. 

I've posted  on different forums (XFree, Gentoo) and haven't found any
help or answers. Which alpha packages are you using? I was trying
unstable (~alpha). Do you also get "unsupported relocation type" entries
in your X logs? What X driver is the Mystique using?

If you find a fix please share it with me.

too...
